Solinftec, a global player in agricultural digitalization, has announced that it will expand the launch of its new cutting edge AgTech robotic platform, Solix Ag Robotics, into Canada in partnership with Stone Farms and the University of Saskatchewan.
The new technology aims to provide farmers and agronomists a new level of information to increase yields, improve the usage of inputs, lower environmental impact, and support the global demand for food supply. The goal is to have the robot commercially available for the 2023 season for wheat crops.
Solinftec will run the new robot at multiple farms, one being Stone Farms in Davidson, aiming to adapt the technology to the specific needs of the Canadian grower and improve the algorithm for identifying weeds.
With more than fifteen years of experience developing digital ag solutions throughout various geographies and crops around the world, Solinftec’s Solix Ag Robotics is integrated with the company’s artificial intelligence platform, ALICE A.I., capturing information directly from the crops. Programmed with a neurological network featuring a complex detection algorithm, the new in-field robotic device has the ability not only to scan for crop health and nutrition, disease, insects, and weeds, but is built to monitor the entire field ecosystem and provide real-time insights.
